It must be really nice living amid nature’s splendor and droning the days away. As evidenced by great albums and a cool festival, Colorado is boasting a solid freak scene these days, with those freaks seem to be quite content. One such is M. Sage who has a new tape coming on Mirror Universe, Scatter the Cabal. In the past we’ve heard Sage collaborate with Daniel Bachman and rip some murky ambient, but today we get a taste of Sage at his most orchestral. The timbres at play on the tapes A side, “A Bad Case of the Corners,” sound more like bowed strings than the six string, and far in the distance you can hear lonesome vocals cry before a slow segue into some gentle digital distortion. Accompanied by heavily manipulated footage of flooding in Colorado, the track reminds that zoning out can often go hand in hand with zoning hard. Scatter the Cabal is out Friday on Mirror Universe.— Ad Hoc M. Sage: “A Bad Case of the Corners”
Echo slinger and Colorado resident M.Sage’s latest cassette, a C31 limited to 50 copies called “Scatter The Cabal”, will be out this Friday on Mirror Universe Tapes. Sage, who also runs the label Patient Sounds, made a video for the side A track “A Bad Case Of The Corners” using footage of the recent flood in his home state taken by his father Mick. You can check out the video below. Everyone in the Sage fam is safe and sound.— M. Sage’s “A Bad Case of the Corners” on TABS OUT.
